Any Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay Brides out there?

Recommended Posts

Things have been going well...but it seems like there is still a lot to do for some reason. A couple of weeks ago we sent out our first newsletter after everyone booked to give them more info, and we also got our BM dresses. Also, while I was home my MOH and mom threw a suprise pampered chef shower for me that was a total suprise and amazing! Still waiting on my dress and the favours to come in but thats about it....just seems like little things now. I am currently looking into flowers as everything I have seen all has roses which I dont want, so we will see! I really under estimated how much work it would be to plan a wedding a do schooling and work full time all at once...I keep dreaming of laying on the beach with a cold drink in my hand! lol

 

We fly in on the 30th so maybe we will see eachother in passing. How are things going with you?

Katelynn - How's planning going??? Since I moved to April I haven't been able to keep up with you as much. I don't think we'll end up being at the resort at the same time anymore... We're leaving April.30th and *hoping* to do a week at Sandles Ochos Rios for our honeymoon right afterwards.

Things are going pretty good. Dress is bought, bridesmaids dresses are bought, FI's suit is bought (still need tie & shoes). Trip is booked, us + 17 guests as of right now. We're having our honeymoon at Sandals Ochos Rios the week after, so we'll be going straight there from GBP on the 30th. So that will be booked and paid for next week. We're going to be doing our registry in November. Photographer is booked.  Save the dates were sent out middle of August. Our website is up, I need to update it a bit but what can you do, I'm busy!

I haven't started with flowers yet... they're not a big deal to me (I'm not a big flowers person), but I agree that roses can be kind of cliche. It Beverly would ever get back to me I'd ask her about them!

Hey Ladies,

I'm in the process of booking a August 2011 wedding at the GBP!! I'm so glad I found this forum, there are so many good ideas and great info! I emailed Beverly to try and set a date with her but no response yet, hopefully soon!! cheesy.gif

Hi everyone,

 

I'm getting married at the GBP in April 2011, and this thread/forum has been a lifesaver!  Although I feel like a slacker compared to most of you - you're all shaming me into doing much more than I thought I would for a DW wink.gif But there are just so many great ideas!!  Anyone else going to be there from April 1-8?

Hey paddies, I had noticed some comments on here about Tai Flora (theflower vendor) being kinda pricey. Where were you able to find prices? I didn't see anything on their website and I emailed them for a quote, but still no reply.

 

Thanks

Wow...Im surprised that you didn't get an answer from TiaFloral.  That was where I got my prices from.  My quote was around $3,000 for the flowers!  That was for my bouquet, 5 bm bouquets, 2 junior bm, my FI bout, 5 gm bouts, centerpieces for the tables, tablecloths, blah blah, blah...this was supposed to be easier...I don't want all this stuff!  So i had them revise the quote and take a bunch of stuff out, but it was still around $1800 and I thought, this is ridiculous...so I have now found some real touch flowers for me and my 5 bm's, we are going to make everyone elses...I don't care about tablecloths, some flowers come with our wedding package so that is going to be all we are using.  I refuse to pay that much money for all these flowers when people won't be able to keep them and enjoy them!

They sent me their package and I have it saved in my email, so if you want it PM me your addy and I'll send it to you. I felt they were pricey and didnt have what I wanted...they were ALL roses and I am not a rose person, in my email to them I even stated no roses...lol

 

I am still waiting to hear back from the garden place...but so far to me Jan's is best!

Missy - wow that does seem very pricey for flowers. I'm thinking of having my bm's carry parasols instead of bouquets. I've found some really cute photos with the parasols. Thanks for the info!

 

Katelynn - I pm'd you and thanks again!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
